Black Lace Elderberry Shrubs

Sambucus nigra 'Eva' Black Lace

Black Lace Elderberry shrubs are a stunning flowering shrub. The intense purple black leaves are finely cut, giving it a look that is similar to Japanese maples. The Pink flowers in the spring contrast well with the dark almost black leaves. The flowers are followed by blackish red berries in the fall which can be used for making elderberry wine and jam, or left on the plant to attract birds and other wildlife. Elderberries are known as a super-fruit.

How to Care for Black Lace Elderberry Shrubs

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Black Lace Elderberry shrubs that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely too much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Black Lace Elderberry shrubs to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. We recommend Bio-Tone fertilizer at planting
